HARTSVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say four children have died in a fire that swept through a mobile home in Hartsville.
A spokesman for the city, Russell Cox, said firefighters found the bodies Wednesday afternoon after taking about 10 minutes to put out the blaze. 

A county official says the children are all brothers and sisters: a three-year-old boy, a 4-year-old boy, and twin girls, age one.

A photograph taken by the Darlington County sheriff showed the charred interior of the mobile home while the outside appeared to be relatively undamaged. A tricycle and another children's toy could be seen in the yard.
Investigators have just begun to look through the home's charred interior and had no immediate report on a possible cause.
